Dennis Day took a hiatus from show business to serve in the US Navy from 1944 until 1946.  When he returned from military service, he continued to work on Jack Benny Show and also starred in his own show, A Day in the Life of Dennis Day.  That show broadcast between 1946 and 1951 which are included in this collection.  His problems revolved around his girlfriend, Mildred Anderson was first played by Sharon Douglas and later by Barbara Eiler.
